The Courier. THURSDAY, AUGUST 22, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 August 1861

Wift Courier, TSURSDAT, AUGUST 22, 1801. THE delicate sensibilities of that august Hittle political family of which the lion, "WESTERN WOOT> is the rising hope, ,and Dr. FULLERTON tho Nestor, have, wo fear, suffered a somewhat severe shock from the verdict returned by tho jury, yesterday afternoon, ia tho case EJEGINA V. PUGÏI. WO cannot, however, refrain from congratulating the members of that dignified body the Legislative Council, and also the Attorney-3-eneral, KATCIAEHE PRING, Esq., upon the re- sult of the recent trial. Had it been possible that by any strange fatality twelve citizens could have boen brought ltogethcr in the jury-box who would liave returned a verdict of guilty ; and had the publisher and printer of tho Courier been, in consequence of the .verdict, incarcerated, neither the Legis- lative Council nor RATCLIFFE PRING, Esq., 'would have had much cause for triumph. , They may depeud upon it that the con- viction of the defendant in this particular »case would h...

THE DEATH OF CAVOUR AND THE EASTERN QUESTION. [From the Liverpool Albion.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 August 1861

THE DEATH OF CAVOUR AND THE EASTERN QUESTION. [From tho Liverpool Albion.) WHATEVER other complications the death of the Picdmonteso Minister may retard orprc cipitale, thero can be little doubt that it will hnsten the denouement of the Oriental dif- ficulty, one way or the other; for it will necessitate the prompt application ' of at least some of those means which it is well known were concocted between the deceased statesman and the French Emporor forac tion on the Rhine and the Tiber, in order to work out certain long-calculated results on the Bosphorus, whereby a third Power, serving and subsorved elsewhere by theso two and others, shall prosper whoro and how it has only ever prospered,-namely, in Turkey, by Western intervention. In view of this contingency, tho last dospatch of Prince Gortschakoff to Count Kisseleff, on the evacuation of Syria by the French, is siuglaily calculated to draw attention to those problems which events continue to bring into broad relief. As regards...

SUPEEME COURT. CRIMINAL SITTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 August 1861

SUPEEME COURT. CRIMINAL SITTINGS. BEFORE Mr. Justice Lutwyche and a jury of twelve. LIBEL. Regina v. Pugh.     This was a prosecution for a libel upon the Legislative Council. The prosecution was instituted by the Attorney-General at the request of that body. We give a brief summary of the proceedings, reserving a full report until Saturday next. The indictment charged the defendant with the publication of a seditious libel. The alleged libel con- sisted of a leading article, published in the Courier, of July 30th. The article in ques- tion commented in severe terms upon certain resolutions passed by the Council with reference to the conduct of his Honor the Judge, also upon the debate in the same Chamber upon those resolutions, and likewise upon the debate in the Council upon the motion for the second reading of the Supreme Court Bill. Theophilus Parsons Pugh, the defen- dant in the present action, is the printer and publisher of the journal in which the a...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 August 1861

MISCELLANEOUS. JAMAICA was visited in the afternoon of the 27th ultimo with a very severe earthquake. This shock was equally felt in the capital of Kingston, at Montego Bay, and in the county of Cornwall ; and though no lives were lost much consternation was lblt, and some con- siderable damage to property inilictod. A leading mercantile house in Philadelphia which has done much and paid liberally to stand well with tho South, lately received a letter from a debtor in Louisiana in these terms:-" Our note to you for 10,000 dollars, duo this day, will not bo paid. Wo have lent the money to the Confederate States, and you may go to-."-New York Tribune. I was told this morning, by the hotol keopcr, that I was probably tho only person in tho house, or about it, who had not loaded revolvers in his pockets, and ono is aware occasionally of an unnatural rigidity scarcely attributable to the osseous structure in the porsons of those who pass ono in tho crowded passagos.-Mr. Russell's Letter ...

RUSSELL'S AMERICAN NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 August 1861

RUSSELL'S AMERICAN NOTES. IN a letter, dated Now Orleans, May 25, Mr. Russell says :-" Tliprc aro doubts in my minti respecting the number of armed mon actually in tho field in the South, and tho amount of arms in the possession of tho Federal forces. The constant advertisements and appeals for " a few moro men to com- pote " such and such companios furnish sonio sort of evidence that mon aro Btill wanting. But a painful mid startling insight into tho manaor in which ' Volunteers ' havo been sometimes obtained has hoon afforded to mu' at Now Orleans. In no country in the world have outrages on British subjects been so froqiiont ami so wanton as in the Stales of America. They havo boen frequent, perhaps, because thoy havo generally hoon attended with impunity. Englishmen, however, will ho still a little surprised to hear that within a few days British subjects living in New Orleans have been soized, knocked down, carried off from tlioir labour at tho wharf and the workshop, and force...

AN ALARM AT WASHINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 August 1861

AU ALARM AT WASHINGTON. J A CORRESPONDENT of the Arete ror7c Tima ?gives a graphic, but evidently exaggerated, *. account of an alarm, which occasioned con- siderable excitement at Washington. " While the funeral of Col. Ellsworth was passing down Pennsylvania-avenue, rumours of a heavy engagement between Alexandria and the Long Bridge commenced rapidly circulating, nnd with more than usual minuteness of detail. The Secessionists, it was said, had assailed tho Second New Jer- sey Regiment, stntioned in front of the Engineer Corps, now engaged in marking out and constructing a tete du pont for tho pro- tection of the Long Bridge. The Second had ?been driven back with loss, and were now rallying behind two regiments-one from Massachusetts and the other from Rhode Island. This looked exceedingly plausible, as it it well known that this point is the weakest in the Union lino of défonce, now stretching from the Suspension Bridge to Alexandria. Presently a courier spurred along the line,h...

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) WEDNESDAY (Yesterday). [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 August 1861

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) WEDNESDAY (Yesterday). THE proceedings of the adjourned Grammar School meeting, held last evening at the Court-house, commenced soon after half-past seven, and lasted until midnight ; therefore I can only give a brief outline. The Mayor was in the chair. There were about two hundred persons present. The chairman briefly introduced the object of the meeting, and called upon the mover of the adjourn- ment to move the first resolution. The Rev. Mr. Reid moved, " That in the opinion of this meeting the time has arrived when it is expedient to have established in Ipswich a public school under the provisions of the Grammar School Act of 1860." He said he thought they had reason to congra- tulate themselves that the meeting had been adjourned. The clerk of the weather had ceased his eccentricities, and now there was an assemblage worthy of the object. After reading the resolution, he remarked that he was aware that some persons thought the time was lo...

NATIVE POLICE REPORT. [CONTRIBUTED.] NEXT for the exoneration of Lieutenant BLIGH, in respect to the Maryborough slaughter. This affair was transacted pub- licly in the middle of the town, ,in the pre- sence of a great number of white people; but after receiving the very grave evidence of Mr. SHERIDAN, the committee appear to have been satisfied to wait for the explana- tions of the ollicer liiniholf, fifty-three dnyà after. In this they acted with great caution, for the evidence of these two is contra, diotory. First, we will give Mr. SHEKIDAN'I>, in answer to the chairman : " 60.

QUEENSLAND BANKS AND NEW SOUTH WALES SHAREHOLDERS." (CONTRIBUTED.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 August 1861

QUEENSLAND BANKS AND NEW SOUTH WALES SHAREHOLDERS." (OOKTBIBÜTKD.) To a community as to an individual no sub- ject is of moro importance than a sufficient supply of the circulating medium. Tn spite of the wonderful progress we aro making in social and political advancement, the cry that " money is scarce" is to be heard on all hands, coupled sometimes with astonish- ment that such should be the caso with so many banks in the district. .On examina- tion of the quarterly returns ol the liabili- ties and assets of the banks trading in Queensland will, however, put an end to the astonishment and open the eyes of the public to a state of things no less strange than true. Although the returns are not so complete or intelligible as they might be,the difference between the liabilities and assets of nearly £300,000 beiug unaccounted for; still the fignres published will enable us to ascertain with tolerable accuracy the following im- portant results, viz:-« 1.

METROPOLITAN GOSSIP. (From the Albion.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 22 August 1861

METROPOLITAN GOSSIP. , (From tho Albion.) WITH the exception of ,the renovated and reinstated Caucasian's Coningsbyized .caus- ticity last night there has hardly been an incident in the commons all the week woith notice. The dulness of the debates has been relieved by a sort of funereal friskiness in the lobby, where some of the rattletraps at the door have been running down the inside slow coaches with fast îaillery of a rather too ironical, not to say brassy, a kind. Slowest of all the snail-pace drugs, droniest of rumble-tumbles, is Baines, who claims to . . bo of Mercury because of total deficiency in ). quicksilver, and his affluence in unalloyed lead ;-and as on Joe Miller was fathered everybody's jokes because he was dullest'of the sons of mon, so is the member for Leeds made a perennial fount of piquant pleasantry, on the tucus a non principle, because of the impossibility of inserting the faintest ray of a seuse of humour into ,his opaque idiosyn cracy.

All the members were present except Alderman Thompson, who was absent on business at Brisbane. Letters were read from Messrs. Rourke and Munroe, Rogers, and Blaine, applying for river frontage for wharves. The Mayor and Alderman Johnston expressed an opinion that only short leases should be granted until it was ascertained where the bridge would be made, and upon tho understand- ing that the lessees should not have it in their power to obstruct the construction of that work. A letter was read from the under secretary, stating that government were not prepared at present to accede to the application of the council for the £3000 voted for the bridge over the Bremer, but that the matter would be taken into con- sideration, and their decision announced as early as possible.
